What Car? says...
Once upon a time, the BMW 4 Series was really just a three-door version of the uber-popular 3 Series, albeit with a slightly swoopier roofline. And that was fine, except you couldn’t escape the feeling that you were paying more money for what was ultimately less car.
But this latest version is different. Sure, it’s still based on the same underpinnings as its more sensibly shaped saloon sibling, but you’d never guess it from the styling. Indeed, the 4 Series looks quite different from anything else in BMW’s range, mainly thanks to a face that (let’s be honest) not everyone will love.
